Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts of the Bay Area is the world's pre-eminent organization dedicated solely to girls. In an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world.

In partnership with committed adult volunteers, Girl Scouts cultivate their full individual potential. The quality they develop in Girl Scouting, leadership, values, social conscience and convictions about their own self-worth, serve them all of their lives. All activities are age-appropriate and based on the Four Program Goals, as well as on the Girl Scout Promise and Law.

How does it work?

Girl participate in troop activities, go to camp, make friends, earn recognitions, meet great role models and explore new horizons. In doing so, girls develop skills; self-confidence and a sense of responsibility that can help them reach their full potential and grow strong in mind and body. 

What's the impact?

Girl Scouting has touched the life of one out of four women in the United States. It provides a supportive environment where girls learn to be confident leaders and to resist negative peer pressure. A girl who voids society's barriers, who grows up believing in herself, literally can change the world.
